Another new face graces the halls of Soma’s roster as American based Techno artist Jeff Derringer make a blistering debut with Panic. Jeff weighs in with 2 top-notch hypnotic Techno tracks and we also welcome a debut on Soma from the incomparable Mike Parker who whips up his usual storm of sound on his remix of title track Panic.
Jeff Derringer fashions hypnotic loops into deep and darkly charged techno. Now comes Situational Ethics, Jeff’s first full three-track EP. Over “Ambition”, “Compassion” and “Shame” Jeff Derringer masterfully builds tension with shamanic cyclical rhythms and punishing basslines, weaved here into potent and intoxicating concoctions from haunted beginning, viper-laden middle to heavyweight end. Electric Deluxe bedfellow Brendon Moeller then concludes the EP with a rework of “Shame” plied with signature Moeller-crafted sounds over a punchy, turbulent beat that only just about lifts Jeff Derringer’s powerful spell.
